A shot killed the man that had changed the lives of so many, but never killed the dream. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot as he walked on the balcony from room 307 at the Lorraine Hotel and Rev. Samuel “Billy” Kyles was there to witness it. It has been 40 years now since that tragic event and Rev. Kyles was kind enough to share his deep experience with us on our first stop at Memphis, Tenn. He told us of how it felt to be there and what he expects young people should do in order to carry the baton of the civil rights movement into the 21st Century and beyond.
